It was another game night Friday. The Hawaii Warriors were in town for a rematch of last season when they took the the WAC championship from us. Well, payback is a bitch, as they say.
We pretty much dominated them on the defense side of the ball. Our defense is scary good. In every game except one (Oregon) we have held the opposing offense to a single score. That’s it. Amazing. Last night, we pulled down 5 interceptions and got 7 sacks. That is a thorough ass whippin.
However, our offense still isn’t as good as it should be. Sure, we won and I won’t ever complain about a win, but we have one weak link on offense this year. Our offensive line just isn’t very good. I don’t know why, but they struggle every game. The running game has never got off the ground. Also, we have not had many deep passes this year. What do both of those things need? Good blocking. We just don’t have it. I am certainly not used to watching a Boise State team be more dominant on defense than offense. It is an interesting change of pace. Especially when you are used to seeing 45+ every game. This year, we have to be satisfied with 24+, but this time around we’re holding the opponents to 11 points a game. A “W” is a “W”, I suppose.
This also marked the first game I was able to bring our new camera to. Jess and I got a Canon XSi Digital SLR a couple weeks ago and I’m still figuring out how to use it. But, it came with a couple nice lenses and what follows are some of my favorite shots I got. Click on each one to go to the flickr page or view the whole gallery here.
